We just returned after a one week stay at this property and I was very impressed overall. This property is very good for families, with many activities available, a very large pool with waterslide and the Camp Hyatt program for the younger kids.
The pool area is the centerpiece of the resort, with several pools on different levels. The waterslide seemed to be a very popular aspect of the pools as well as the lazy river. There is also an adult only pool which was better for the adults to use. The service for food and drinks around the pool was attentive, timely and for Hawaii the prices were somewhat reasonable. The food quality was good, so we frequently had lunch at the pool.
This property has a nice tennis program, with a tennis pro, 3 well maintained courts and tennis shop. They have a clinic every morning at 9am for advanced players and it was very nicely done. This was a great opportunity to meet other players for setting up games later in the day. The head pro is Chris, who is quite a nice guy and Aaron provides coverage for 2 days each week. We really enjoyed using the courts and attending the clinics here.
We upgraded to a room overlooking the pools and it was just large enough for our needs. We used the balcony more than once and while I was concerned the pool noise might be distracting, it was quiet once we shut the glass doors.
We had a light breakfast most mornings at the lobby's Seaview Terrace, which has an incredible view and really fast service for an espresso bar. They have great espresso drinks, both the local brew and Starbucks, and their line moves faster than at the local Starbucks.
We also enjoyed Stevenson's Library for a casual dinner on two occasions. This is a library style lounge with pool tables and live entertainment, that happens to have an excellent sushi bar. We went back here again, since the sushi was so good. Wines by the glass were nice also.
The only downside for the property is the beach location is fairly rough, at least during the time we stayed here. It was scenic for hiking, but not good for swimming, due to the conditions, waves, etc. The swimming is better at the Sheraton down the way.
The staff at the Grand Hyatt was excellent thoughout the property and they made everything very pleasant. We would definitely stay here again.
